We camped here at site 62. Very shaded, with a concrete pad and gravel picnic area and fire ring. Our site was lake-front, but we couldn't access the lake from our site due to a steep ledge. Some other campers on our loop (sites 62-75) had their boats tied up to their sites. There is a nice swimming area and beach very close to our loop and the bath house was about 100 yards away. The bath house was clean, and is your typical state park type of facility. We would camp here again. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This Corps Of Engineer (COE) park is one of the best on Lake Lanier. It is a favorable campground for the large RVs and motor homes because of the availability of 50 amp electric hookups. Also, because the layouts are spacious and nicely surrounded by the lake. Majority of the lops and sites have a very generous view of the lake. Even though it has a designated playground and swim area, there are several camp sites that have easy access to other swim areas. They even provided additional parking space at strategic parks of the campground for campers who arrive with more that one automobile. It is no wonder the campground was full the weekend of May 9th when we camped here, considering that the schools were still in session and the meteorologists had rain on their forecasts much of that weekend. TV and mobile phone reception are at their best here. The camp hosts are very nice folks. They graciously helped me with to contact a mobile RV repair guy when I intimated them that my A/C unit was broken. We will surely return to this campground.

Very beautiful park. Was in pull through (4) near lake although it is a steep incline to walk to the lake. Restrooms were very clean and staff very friendly. A nice peaceful stay. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Typical of COE campgrounds. Old Federal is beautiful and laid out in fingers along the lake. Since check out is 3 pm, our "reserved" site was still occupied. We were directed to park at a sports complex several miles away, and we would be called when the site was vacated. We offered to take an alternative if one became available, but were denied. Just before 3pm we were called and proceeded to the gate. That is apparently the time campers can re-up, so the attendant was very busy. We didn't receive a map or any paperwork except the site tag. Our site was so lumpy we needed to park partially on the "patio" in order to become level. Showers were far away, so I didn't even check them. In spite of this, we would return for a short stay again or chose another park on this lovely lake. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

We were in a level/concrete site. Beware of sites which have not been renovated. Power fully upgraded 50amp. Great views. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

We stayed here for three days while visiting the Atlanta area. This park is beautiful and the setting is beautiful. It is right on the shores of Lake Lanier, the way it is laid out most, if not all sites, have lake views. There are no sewer sites but we still had such a wonderful stay. Each site has a patio area with picnic table and fire ring. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

This COE CG has 4 or 5 of the best sites we've ever enjoyed. Some sites are (in our opinion) just dreadful. Full sun, no privacy and far from the lake. Some sites are just excellent due to good shade, fairly private and great lake views. Loop 64-75 offers stunning views of sunset. Water/electric only at all sites. A very busy CG during the summer months. A very nice CG due to sites, location and price. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Very nice (COE) park on Lake Lanier. Very well kept, sites were clean, many with shade and great view of the lake. Slight down side was the water was intermittently rusty. The staff at the fee booth were great and very helpful. Close to shopping in Gainesville. Fee reflects discount for the Senior Park Pass. Will definitely return.

What a gem. We really love Corps parks, especially with the senior discount. This one also had w/d at each rest room area. Had we stayed longer, would have used them. Loved seeing all the sailboats go past our spot each day. A little much of a drive each day to Atlanta to visit friends, but the inexpensive price more than paid for gas used. And nice wineries to the north make for a great day trip. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

One of the best kept secrets. Beautiful with water everywhere, tie your boat up at your campsite. Mostly shady spots with cool breezes. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

This was our first time at a COE campground. We were very impressed with the cleanliness of the facilities. The electric and water hookups looked new. The staff were very, very nice. We highly recommended it!! We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

Site pads are mostly back in & not very wide, but most have a separate area for the fire ring/picnic table. We were in #29, great lake view & 20ft to water, lake is full. No playground equipment and only one dump site. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Motorhome.Undo

Nice big sites most being lakefront. The water is low in Lake Lanier so hard to get our kayak in the water. The drinking water was very brown even when using a filter so we resorted to only bottled water. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We really enjoyed this location. The COE really run a nice operation. The hosts were very helpful and added to our good review. All the sites are lake view with some better than others. The grounds and bathouses were well taken care of. All major retail stores are fairly close. I got 39 channels on my batwing antenna: amazing. This would be a ten if it had sewer hookups.

This is a beautiful park with outstanding views from most sites. We had difficulty reserving a site (it apparently is very popular) so we ended up in one of the sites without any shade (97 degrees that weekend!). Site was level and very easy to back into. Restrooms were clean, but we did not use the showers. Campground hosts very friendly and helpful. Our kids had a great time at the beach and walking through the park. The dump station was very clean. This park is 10 minutes down the road from our house and we intend to be regulars! The addition of sewers would improve our rating to a 10. Many campers also brought watercraft, which were tied up to the shoreline. Very quiet; no problems with noise or bad behavior. We camped at Old Federal COE in a Travel Trailer.Undo
